Pillars of Salt

no regrets-that's important
its the key to living
its no life if you're living in the past
don't keep albums, don't keep photos
just face forward like a train
see your future not your past and you'll be fine

this all seemed so easy
i'd learned all my lessons
i'd listened to the teacher in class
but when i missed that assignment
looked back for a second
i saw you in the corner of my eye

that's when i said
Get out of my life
out of my sight
i never wanna see you again
i thought i'd moved on but
these feelings that i'm feeling
i feel like i'm losing control

Get out of my mind
Out of my sight
Out of these photos
And out of my life

the very fact you're in these lines
these lines that i'm writing
this was meant to be for me but its for you
now my eyes are fully opened
the things i didn't see before
you're in every choice i've ever had to make

this all seemed so easy
i built those walls so high
i thought that they were strong but they're not
its built on pillars of salt
my defences are broken
now all that i can see are your eyes
thats when i said
Get out of my life
out of my sight
i never wanna see you again
i thought i'd moved on but
these feelings that i'm feeling
i feel like i'm losing control

Get out of my mind
Out of my sight
Out of these photos
And out of my life

OUT OF MY LIFE!
